ODST Working Flip Visor

Hey there everyone! I have been a part of the Facebook group for a while now but I have never posted here. So here is what I’m working on. It is a flip up ODST visor to show combat mode and the clear visor. I have a vacuum formed visor coming in soon (Thank you Sorren Tromp) for the outer visor. I have 3D printed, wired, and coded this entire program and I made the current visor soon. This has been a random love product that I’ve been wanting to do for a while along with the armor. While I don’t have many pictures from the build I will try to provide as many detailed photos as I can.

How did I do it? Here’s a semi comprehensive guide:

First I 3D printed the helmet I used this file here 3D Printable Halo 3 ODST helmet Wearable Cosplay by jeffrey

  1. After that it was plenty of dremeling and sanding to get it to the point I wanted. That and bondo, lots of bondo and caulk.

  2. I than bought some electronics offline mainly comprising of an Arduino Uno, a servo motor, and I went from an IR sensor and remote to instead using a reed switch and a magnet in my 2nd version of the helmet.

  3. Once the wiring was done I used a modified code I found (had to adjust settings, switch setting, and other variables) the visor functions were complete!

  4. I had to cut a little servo sized hole in the size of the helmet and then I installed it all inside. An airsoft PEQ battery case was used to fit the Arduino while also acting as a helmet attachment.

  5. A magnet is mounted on one of my gloves so when I swipe my hand past the visor goes up and stays there or goes back down!
That is all I have for now. Once I get my vac formed visor I can start to add finishing touches, along with a repaint!

Oh for sure, the visor is practically the same. The top of the intruder helmet looks like it follows the same curvature as the visor
I'm sure it does to be honest. Let me know if you need any more inside shots if your serious about trying this.

Im more on the curious side then anything. I opened up the helmet in 3d builder on windows and started messing around with how the visor would act when flipping up. Encountered a bit of a prob.

As you can see, i made a red copy of the visor portion and had it pivot around the edges of the peripherals and the bottom of the visor would run into the top part of the visor.
Im fairly certain it is doable, just need to finagle and figure it out. Also i wont want to high jack your thread by continuously talking about this. Sorry! :D

I wonder if you did what I did and instead of using the visors bump you could use a flat visor on the inside and a vac formed on the outside? It could potentially work then

I see what you are saying. That could potentially work. Maybe when i get around to printing and making the intruder helmet, i can revisit this idea. I think it'll be dope for any helmet lol

Welcome to the forum, Rock Lobbster! I was hoping that you'd post this here. Thank you for sharing and offering to help out others! I suspect that I'll be in touch shortly about rigging up my ODST bucket!
